Hakafa means "encirclement."
We are a Reform congregation
of people who choose
to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for nearly 40 years. But as we grow,
our intimate, caring, and
welcoming atmosphere remains.


New announcements are posted each Wednesday.

Shabbat Service

Join us on the last Friday of each month for our “bedtime-friendly” Shabbat service which begins at 5:30 p.m.! This is a regular service, and it enables families with young children to have a Friday evening Shabbat experience with the rest of our congregational community. A rug with toddler toys will be available. We hope you will be there!

Note: This service is in place of our regular summer 7:00 p.m. service.

Join us to reset, reflect, & connect in a restorative evening steeped in the loving power of community, and enjoy the intimacy of a candlelit space where you will be seen & heard with compassion. While focused on those 18+ who identify as women or nonbinary, people of all gender expressions are welcome to come learn and help elevate these voices.
